Welcome to the MouseHunt Wiki, where users contribute their knowledge of the MouseHunt world for the benefit of the community.

MouseHunt is a popular game in which players, referred to as hunters, catch mice with a variety of traps and cheeses to earn experience points and virtual gold through passive gameplay. From time to time the developers add new locations and mice as well as sponsor thousands of dollars for periodic giveaways and tournaments. MouseHunt was developed by HitGrab Inc. as a Facebook application and released to a small group for beta testing in early 2008. On 7 March 2008, MouseHunt was officially released to the general public. Just nine months later, MouseHunt earned its creators a $250,000 development grant from Facebook and the game continues to grow in popularity.

This wiki exists to inform and educate the community of MouseHunters and those who have an interest in the MouseHunt world and its intricacies.

Halloween has begun in the Kingdom of Gnawnia! Travel to the Gloomy Greenwood and put a stop to Baba Gaga!

The Gloomy Greenwood Returns...

The harrowing hut has returned to nest in the Gloomy Greenwood for this year's Halloween celebration and with it, the spine-tingling siren song of the spooktacular Baba Gaga!

Are you brave enough to travel back to the Gloomy Greenwood, conquer the collectors, command the cauldrons, and capture the most ghoulish performer of all time?

Collect Ingredients, Load the Cauldrons, and Start Brewing

The only way to defeat Baba Gaga and her monstrous minions is to use her own enchanted cauldrons against her! You'll need to collect ingredients from the mice in the Gloomy Greenwood and then put those ingredients into the cauldrons in order to start brewing up spooky flavours of cheese!

Click on either cauldron to open up Baba Gaga's Recipe Book where you'll find all the information you need to start brewing her sinister concoctions.

Start by using any basic bait to catch the least spooky mice in the Gloomy Greenwood and collect the Pungent Pumpkins that they are carrying. If you have any leftover Halloween event cheese from previous years, you can use it instead of basic bait.

Add these Pungent Pumpkins into a cauldron based on Baba Gaga's recipe to brew a batch of Monterey Jack-O-Lantern. With Monterey Jack-O-Lantern armed, you'll be able to attract spookier mice who drop spookier ingredients.

Each tier of mice will drop the ingredient you need to make the next tier of cheese. There are four different types of cheese and each one will attract a unique pool of Halloween event mice. Work your way up to Scream Cheese in order to attract the villainous Baba Gaga herself!

When hunting with any of the new types of cheese, mice will also drop a very valuable ingredient called Mousedrake Root. Use this potent component to distill Baba Gaga's most powerful brew: Evil Extract!

Evil Extract can be traded in at the Apothecary (General Store) for a wide selection of existing potions as well as some extremely powerful ones that were created by Baba Gaga herself! Open up the "Shops" tab in Baba Gaga's Recipe Book to get a detailed look at all of the available potions and what each of them can do.

Get a head start with these delicious delights!

Igniting this incense will add +1 to all ingredients dropped by a mouse in the Gloomy Greenwood, including Mousedrake Root! This incense can be ignited from the Gloomy Greenwood Heads-Up Display and is available from the Reward Track and the Premium Shop.

Brew as much Evil Extract as you can before the event ends!

Shutdown Phase One: Wednesday, November 1, 2023

During this one week shutdown phase, mice will stop dropping all ingredients but you can still brew any ingredients that you've already collected. Brew as many of your ingredients as you can or cash them out in the shops before the cauldron's lose their magic!

Halloween premium items that include ingredients for potion brewing will also be removed from the Premium Shop.

Shutdown Phase Two: Wednesday, November 8, 2023

During this one week shutdown phase, cauldrons will no longer brew potions without the help of Reactive Reagent! Baba Gaga's Boon will also cease to generate any potions without the magic of the cauldrons active. Make sure you finish off any remaining brews and shop purchases!

Halloween premium items will no longer be available for purchase from the Premium Shop.

The Gloomy Greenwood Closes: Wednesday, November 15, 2023

The Boiling Cauldrons Halloween event ends completely and the Gloomy Greenwood location will disappear until next year.

After the event ends all unused ingredients and Evil Extract will rot away and disintegrate!

Travel to the Gloomy Greenwood and start brewing now!
